Saban Speech in Athens Upsets a Few Vols Fans
Alabama coach Nick Saban is speaking at a function for the Athens, Tennessee Chamber of Commerce on June 11th. And apparently a few Vols fans are upset.
Chamber president Rob Preston told the Knoxville News Sentinel that he has gotten a few e-mails from U-T fans, questioning the selection of Saban as their speaker. Some Vols fans believe it's a recruiting ploy for Saban.
According to Preston, the event sold 276 tickets last year with former Vols coach Phil Fulmer as the main speaker. This year, they have already sold over 900 tickets.
